What resolution are you targeting and at what FPS? for 1080p extremely high refresh rates, Intel beats Ryzen by a small margin. at 1440p or 2160p they're equal. 

 

If it was my money:

This is around $1200 without the GPU, so you should be able to fit the 3080 in there

i changed the case as in my opinion the NZXT one you have is a literal oven and wouldn't recommend it. You could drop price here by going with 1TB. (i also included the price of a 3080 if it comes back in stock anywhere).

The case is going to sit on a carpet floor, and the room at 78-80°F. So side vents are needed.
